Yup, you're dumb!

You do know that a question mark at the end of a sentence means that it's a question, right? See just like that!

You don't have to type the word question before the sentence.

Duh

I must have told that one a hundred times myself then I trip up on it!

I once saw a man wind up like a major league pitcher and the throw smoking fast ball, the ball traveled a great distance and then right in front of my eyes the ball stopped in midair and hovered then returned to the mans hand with out touching the ground.

Totally the truth!

No you are not following simple math rules. In this math problem you must use only whole number. That does not mean you round off the answer you round off all numbers before you work the equation.
No, Polymath is right. If the diameter rounds to 10, then its value is between 9.5 and 10.49, which means that the value of the diameter is between 29.85 and 32.96, which would round to 30, 31, 32, or 33 depending on the non-rounded value of the diameter. Remember, we're talking about an actual physical object, not an abstract paper problem.

The really weird aspect of this little interchange is that I've persuaded Polymath to agree with you, i.e. if the actual value of the diameter is rounded to 10, then 30 is one of the possible rounded values of the circumference. But you are so attached to being in disagreement with him that you still have to argue that he's wrong. That's cognitive dissonance on steroids, my friend.

I am simply stating the bible problem is this: 10*(Pi rounded to a whole number)=30.

Not: 10*Pi=(31.4 rounded to whole number)

um you can study the bible translated in modern english instead old 15 century english.
How I learned about the bible was when i was offered a bible study with some christians , they were Jehovahs witnesses.
its a free home bible study, you dont have to go their lil meetings or be one of them .
they study go exactly by the bible .
I also went to the baptist church but with them its mostly just talking instead of researching the scriptures. They had a lot of things to say but its really up to you though
i only studied the bbl with J.Ws because i learned a lot amd it was free lol
Those JWs are fluent in 15th century English, right? And you are taking their word for it? Hey guess what, all buybull study is free, every sect will teach you their own translation of it, FREE OF CHARGE.

No, the Bible says nothing about whole numbers in particular or math problems in general--that is your assumption. The Bible simply gives the dimensions of a circular pool. We don't know whether the Hebrews of the time used fractions or not--or at least I don't. Nor do we know whether the pool in question was a true circle.

But from the descriptions and dimensions, we can infer that the writer knew very little about mathematics and was more than a little imprecise about measurement--the equivalent of a modern "good enough for government work" attitude, perhaps.

Whatever the reason, the passage is flawed.

Yes JWs are a cult Leah. They line up perfectly with just about every real definition of a cult.

Any study of the time period will show you that decimal point were not used.

The passage is correct 3 is Pi using whole numbers. Where is it written that decimal points must be used?

It not! 3 is Pi you all sure need to try harder to disprove the bible.
A cubit is a very crude measurement and you're worried about a point one.

What ever.

As christmas is a celebration of the winter solstice you must be a pagan.

Nice to get back to the point of the thread.
The Bible does claim a quick raising up of the land and dropping or lowering of the ocean floors. This would explain how the flood was able to cover the highest mountains, they were much smaller before God raised them up after the flood. Note: the claims found on top of Everest proof that it was under water.
Now the plant life.
Before the flood there might have been a type of ice canopy surrounding the earth creating a green house effect making all of earth flush with huge plant life. The flood would have killed these off and covered them in mud creating lots of coal and oil.
Now how could 500 million year old coal have man mad items inside of it?
"A fossilized human skull was found in coal that was sold in Germany (mid-1800s). A jawbone of a child was found in coal in Tuscany (1958). Two giant human molars were found in Montana (1926). A human leg was found by a West Virginia coal miner. It had changed into coal.�pp. 34-35.
A woman, in Illinois, reportedly found a gold chain in a chunk of coal which broke open (1891). A small steel cube was found in a block of coal in Austria (1885). An iron pot was found in coal in Oklahoma (1912). A woman found a child's spoon in coal (1937).�p. 35.
In 1944 Newton Anderson claimed to have found this bell inside a lump of coal that was mined near his house in West Virginia. When Newton dropped the lump it broke, revealing a bell encased inside.
What is a brass bell with an iron clapper doing in coal that is supposed to be hundreds of
millions of years old? According to Norm Scharbough's book Ammunition (which includes a compilation of many such "coal anecdotes") the bell was extensively analyzed at the University of Oklahoma and it was found to contain an unusual mixture of metals, different from any modern usage. Photo and text from Genesis Park.
Man-made objects in rock.
An iron nail was found in a Cretaceous block from the Mesozoic era (mid-1800s). A gold thread was found in stone in England (1844). An iron nail was found in quartz in California (1851). A silver vessel was found in solid rock in Massachusetts (1851).
The mold of a metal screw was found in a chunk of feldspar (1851). An intricately carved and inlaid metal bowl was found in solid rock (1852). An iron nail was found in rock in a Peruvian mine by Spanish conquistadores (1572).�pp. 35-36."

Civilisations were using fractional approximations to pi long before your POS bible was invented.

Your bible was already out of date when the goatfuckers wrote it.

Indeed you are correct! No need for people of that time to round up or down or only use while numbers. The ancient Egyptians amongst other cultures were using fractions long before the genesis myth was written.

Why would you think that is the problem in the Bible? The number pi was not singled out as a number of independent interest for a few hundred years; the goal was to find the circumference given the diameter. Given that as the problem, if the 10 is a rounded value, then the rounded value of the circumference could be anywhere from 30 to 33.

<quoted text>
The Babylonians mainly used the equivalent pi=3, which is where the Biblical sources probably got their approximation from. The Egyptians had one value for the circumference and another for the area of a circle. They didn't realize (as the Babylonians did) the connection between the two.

Even fractions were problematic at that stage. The Egyptians had the most developed version of fractions, but even theirs was hard to use. The Babylonians had a base 60 system that didn't actually tell the positional value. An analogy would be writing the same thing for 1.2, 12, 120, and 1200. You see, they didn't have a zero.

Egyptian fractions were unwieldy and were not used in other places. The Biblical results were probably obtained from the Babylonians.
